All Courses (or their online component) are offered via the Learning Portal, on the Website.

On successful registration and payment you will get immediate access to the (online component of the) Course and receive an email with your Username and Password.
Enrolment for face-to-face components
Once enrolled in the online component of the course, there will be a link on the course page in the Learning Portal to book a face-to-face session.
As part of the registration process, or as part of your continued use of the Courses, you may be required to provide personal information about yourself (such as employer or contact details), including:
- an email address
- a mailing address
- a telephone number
- a password
You agree to provide accurate, correct and up to date information upon registration.
Once you are registered and have an Account you also agree to comply with the following:
- you have the sole responsibility for protecting the confidentiality of your password and/or email address. Use of your password by any other person, or third parties, is strictly prohibited and may result in the immediate cancellation of the Course; and
- you agree to immediately notify Diabetes Qualified of any unauthorised use of your password or email address or any breach of security of which you have become aware.
Course fees must be paid when enrolling in a course, using the Eway online payment process on the Website.

Diabetes Qualified occasionally advertise Coupon codes (‘Coupons’) to enable discount prices on course enrolments. It is your responsibility to use the coupon code correctly during enrolment.
Coupons are to be used once only by the User within the specified timeframe and only for the specified courses.
Cancellations, transfers and refunds
Notifications of cancellations or request for transfers or refunds must be made in writing, by sending an email to email@example.com. Please see the clauses below to find out if you would be eligible for a refund or transfer.
Cancellation or transfer of course
As immediate access to course materials is provided on payment of your Course, regrettably no refunds can be made.
If you have accidently bought the wrong Course we can transfer you to the correct Course, after payment of the difference in Course fee. Or, if applicable, we will refund the difference in Course fee within 10 business days.
However we can only transfer you to another course when:
- we have verified that you have not commenced the course, and;
- you notify us within 5 business days of purchasing the course.
Cancellation of a face-to-to face component
We understand that changes in circumstances can mean you are no longer able to attend the face-to-face component you have booked in for. However, cancellations can cause us difficulties and are therefore subject to the following conditions.
A minimum of 5 business days prior to the commencement of a face-to-face component is required to cancel or reschedule. No refunds will be made if you cancel the face-to-face component, but from the day you notify us of the cancellation you will have 365 days to reschedule the face-to-face component, at no extra cost.
Unless due to a medical emergency, a late cancellation (less than 5 business days prior to commencement of the face-to-face component) or failure to attend the face-to-face component can incur a rescheduling fee of up to $150.
Cancellation of a course by us
We make every endeavour to run published Courses and their face-to-face components.
In the unforeseen event we need to cancel your Course, for any reason, you agree that our liability to you as a result of our cancellation is restricted to a refund of the Course fees. Diabetes Qualified does not accept liability for any consequential loss.
- Cancellation of course: If we need to cancel a Course and you are therefore no longer able to complete your Course, we will endeavour to notify you as soon as possible and you will receive a full refund of the Course fee.
- Cancellation of face-to-face component date: In the event we need to cancel or reschedule a face-to-face component date (‘Session’) because we are no longer able to conduct the Session on that date for reasons beyond our reasonable control, including a venue or teacher becoming unavailable, or for any other reason, we will endeavour to notify you as soon as possible and we will reschedule you for the next available date, unless we are required by law to give you a refund.
Enrolment period and extensions
Each (online component of the) Course is sold on a subscription basis for a period of 12 months, unless there is another period stipulated on the course description page of each course. The subscription time (or ‘Enrolment period‘) commences on the day of notification to the User of their Username and Password.
Course extensions are at the sole discretion of Diabetes Qualified.
When an assessment needs to be passed to successfully complete a Course, the number of attempts is generally limited to 3.
